There are probably settings in the app -- perhaps in the system preferences pane -- that can be changed.

SOURCE: My Macbook shut down during reserve battery power

If that does not work, when you turn on the computer, hold the "Command" and "S" keys, this should boot to single user mode. When finished, it will dump you to a command prompt. From there type "/sbin/fsck -fy" (no quotes) and press enter. That wil run the BSD Filesystem Check. Once that is complete, type "reboot" and hit enter.

If there was an error with the file system that was keeping you from booting, that will solve it.

SOURCE: ok on my macbook pro it seems to have locked up i

Hello
This can be hardware or software related...
If you can see the dock, it means that the system started up with success, but had a hard time to get your account running.
You should try these:
- Press the shift key at startup for 15 seconds at the startup chime). this will check your hard drive, and deactivate extensions. it will ask for your password.
- If you see your desktop, and the apple, then go to the apple menu - system preferences - accounts -startup items tab. Delete all the startup items
- If it did nothing, the you should try to boot from your OS DVD pressing the c key at startup, abd repair the disk's permissions here
- At last, reinstall your system, choosing the "archive and install" option when requested
Hope this helps

Your best bet is to reset the System Management Controller;

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964

...and then reset the Parameter RAM:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1379

If it persists after that, try Safe Mode:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1455

...if that persists, try booting to your install DVD and running Disk Utility:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1417

..also note in this article that if for some reason you are unable to boot into your Install DVD the instructions for using fsck will do the same thing.

If that fails to resolve the issue, you'll want to reinstall the system, but that is a bit more of a sticky wicket since you're on a Macbook Air that does not have an optical drive. You can use remote disc sharing with another Mac to do this:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1131

...and then boot to that shared disc:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2129

..and then reinstall:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1710.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, it will likely need repair at an Apple Authorized Service Provider or Apple Store.

It may be a possibility that the hard drive has gone bad or a connection to the hard drive. The spinning wheel and apple signify the kernel boot, or in other words, the process in which the machine finds the hd and os/software.. you need to bring your machine into an authorized repair center to have a system diagnosis to verify that no other parts of the machine are bad. That model is notorious for having bad hd's.

I just lost the menu bar at the top of my Macbook Air- how do I make it active again?


Try and start your Mac in safe mode.

To do this, as soon as you power on your Mac hold the shift key until the screen turns black and text starts scrolling down the screen.
The Mac will check itself and then boot up (wait for it, it will take a few minutes.)

Hello, I'v got a MacBook Air, and it won't turn on as it goes: on, the Apple logo shows, the waiting wheel spins and then turns off again, and keep doing this till i shut it down for good... it won't turn...


Try:

1. Turn your MacBook Air off by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds.
2. Hold down one of the Shift keys and press the power button for a few seconds. Keep holding the shift key for about 1/2 minute. This will start the machine in "Safe Mode." It will check to make sure there are no errors on your hard drive and do other tasks to hopefully fix your problem.
3. Once you see your Desktop (if you do), click the Apple menu and click "Shutdown".
4. Start the computer normally by holding down the power button for a couple seconds.

If this doesn't work, you may need to reinstall the operating system. On a MacBook Air, that's a bit more complicated. You'll need either the external DVD drive (an optional purchase for the Air) or another computer. Your computer manual explains how to install software on that other computer (may or may not be necessary) so that you can use that computer's DVD drive to put the disc in and reinstall Mac OS X operating system.

Good luck! Please let us know if you have further questions or problems.

The loading 'logo' wont disappear. pls help.


Hold the power button down. Keep it down until the unit powers off. Then press power to start the machine up, and as soon as you hear the starting chime (boooong) press Command+Option+P+R and keep them held down until you hear the startup sound 3 times. Then you can let go and it should start normally.

MacBook wont run from battery


Apple does have a battery recall/fixing procedure on certain macbooks and macbook pros.

The battery of a MacBook or MacBook Pro computer may:
  • Appear to have no charge (zero percent)
  • Be unable to power the computer by itself; the computer might work only when it is connected to the MagSafe power adaptor, which only shows a green LED
  • Appear with a black "X" icon on the menu bar

  1. Shut down, then remove and reinstall the battery. Test for the issue(s) again.
  2. Connect the MagSafe power adaptor (if you haven't already) and see if the behavior continues.
  3. If the issue(s) persist, download and install the Mac OS X 10.4.9 Update.
  4. If the issue(s) persist, Download and install Battery Update 1.2.
If, after installing the Mac OS X 10.4.9 Update and Battery Update 1.2, a black "X" still appears in the menu bar, contact apple by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753)
